Title:Self-similarity theory of stationary coagulation
Author(s):Pushkin, Dmitri O.; Aref, Hassan
Subject(s):Coagulating systems
Stationary particle size distribution
Abstract:A theory of stationary particle size distributions in coagulating systems with particle injection at small sizes is constructed. The size distributions have the form of power laws. Under rather general assumptions, the exponent in the power law is shown to depend only on the degree of homogeneity of the coagulation kernel. The results obtained depend on detailed and quite sensitive estimates of various integral quantities governing the overall kinetics. The theory provides a unifying framework for a number of isolated results reported previously in the literature. In particular, it provides a more rigorous foundation for the scaling arguments of Hunt, which were based largely on dimensional considerations.
